Esprit S1 tailgate latch not holding over bumps

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 
My S1 is now working well mechanically, but I have a new problem . My tailgate used to shut correctly (A tug on the cable release and a push on the tailgate enabled the latch mechanism) . However now over any bump it opens. I am not sure that the mechanism is correct, photo is enclosed . The catch holding the tailgate down is clearly opening . Does anyone have a photo of what theirs looks like and what could be the problem/adjustment necessary ? It used to hold, so perhaps I just need to tighten the catch but not clear to me how. I do not have a rubber stop that I have seen on diagrams .

Thanks for any help on this
